How does Acupuncture work?
Normal life stresses, our lifestyle choices, our environment and injury upset our natural balance and lead to physical and emotional symptoms. I work to identify the root cause of the symptoms and then using very fine, sterilized painless needles to activate specific energy points on the body.
Recent MRI scans show that acupuncture triggers on the body’s bring a healing process by calming the central nervous system, regulating hormones and releasing endorphins.
